Dermalog to highlight ID tech
06 February 2018 16:47 GMT

German biometric firm Dermalog plans to highlight how biometric recognition systems can speed up and simplify passenger handling, for example with facial or fingerprint recognition.

In a statement ahead of the 21st European Police Congress on 6 and 7 February in Berlin, the firm said 12 states, including Singapore, Malaysia, Maldives, Cambodia, Algeria and Brunei, are already relying its solutions to monitor their national borders. The company's fingerprint scanners are also in use at German airports and at border crossings in Switzerland and the Netherlands. This makes DERMALOG Europe's leading provider of border control systems.

The core of the DERMALOG solution is a so-called Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS). The multimodal system cannot only match fingerprints but also additional biometric features such as facial or iris patterns. This makes DERMALOG ABIS much more reliable than solutions that only check one identifier.

For border control at airports, DERMALOG has developed the DERMALOG Self Registration Kiosk and the DERMALOG Gate. Equipped with latest camera and scanner technology, travelers can be checked fully automated. The portfolio is complemented by video surveillance systems with integrated face recognition. If monitoring from the airspace is required, the DERMALOG technology can also be integrated in drones.
